CAMAGÜEY. - The actions of two heroes as Fidel Castro Ruz and Jesus Suárez Gayol are still fresh in the memory, as if a few days had scarcely passed. There seems only a question of getting soaked in their teachings and of reading them in the books to imagine the first one, directing from “La sierra” and the other, giving his life for a sister nation. They were two men who fought in different fronts, but under the same Martí´s slogan of seeing their Homeland freed.

From the infancy, both heroes knew, between diversions and escapades, the delights of the work of José Martí. They drank it like the elixir that forms the soul and gives the good sense to those who continue it. Fidel specified these ideals, along with the people, in the shape of a country that does not perish in the cyclonic gusts, or in the dashing of the North American empire, to build the same "Utopian" dream from which Gayol never resigned, of a ground at which it is worked with all and for the good of all.

The incipient revolutionary "wood" of The Blond, since they called tenderly Jesus Suárez Gayol, is immortalized in a snapshot luck by a biographer: "He likes to go of fishing to bring trouts to the mother. He is of an explosive character, but not for useless fights (…) Scarcely he learns to read, he discovers José Martí, of whose doctrines he will be always faithful. Since then, when he hears that the anthem of Cuba is interpreted, he makes to stand up his parents who came from Spain”.

For the line of the Apostle, the two of them assumed their youth with impetus, armed with courage and ready to change the panorama of the servile republic where they lived. The studies in Architecture of Gayol or the lessons in Law of Fidel, they did not prevent their link with the most radical student groups that showed definitely their dissatisfaction to the rulers.

Loving a fairer society had a high cost for them. The shifting governments tried to extinguish their concepts with blows, tortures and threats, but failed. From the Orthodox Party, the Commander in Chief outlined his character as leader and, hundred years after the birth of Martí, he united the young people who like him were considering the way of the rifle to be most appropriate to continue the struggle of our National Hero. This generation re-stimulated the flame of The Teacher, first with the assault to the Moncada barracks and then with the creation of the Movement July 26.

With an arduous work against the Batista´s regime, The Blond founded in 1955, in Camagüey, the M-26-7, where he organized sabotages and fully fulfilled the orders of the top cells. After obtaining the sufficient experience, he set off to Pinar del Rio and carried actions as the fire of a radio station. Without setting "excuses", with Martí´s prescript of being there in the place in which one is more useful, he integrated the troop of the Che in Las Villas and for his merits he obtained the captain's grade.

To several hundreds of kilometers of Gayol, Fidel was fighting in the Sierra Maestra. Under his control, the column José Martí displaced victorious the traces of the Batista´s tyranny and to his step he was applying laws with humanist traces for the have-nots, laws that they would define of the new age as that of Agrarian Reform, on May 17, 1959.

"(…) the Cuban Revolution is not only the concrete defeat that the imperialism has received in the small piece of world that is the territory of our country (…) it is the example that indicates to other peoples the way of their liberation”, wrote Gayol to his son before traveling to Bolivia to fight for a united Latin America. With these prescripts, the Historical Leader of the exploit of ‘59 hoisted from January the 1st, the flags of the latinoamericanism that it made extensive with the support to oppressed nations like Angola, Ethiopia and the Congo.

Although their lips do not narrate their epics to us anymore and only let's find them on the pages of the history, in the memories of the grandfather or in the image in movement, they will always remain here, alive, because as Martí, they represent the most genuine of the feeling and of the altruistic identity of the Cuban.
